Cheryl Cole admitted that Gamu had made a calming influence on her, on last night’s X Factor show. The Zimbabwean singer, who has lived in Scotland for the last five years, made Louis Walsh cry with her bootcamp performance of ‘Make You Feel My Love’ and sailed through to the judges houses round. Her early exit has left many people angry and confused considering that her performances were way better than Cher and Katie.
There had however been emails circulating that Gamu would not go through due to complications withe her visa. According to reports the 18-year-old moved from Zimbabwe eight years ago with mum Nokutula, 38, and brothers Milton, 12, and Marty, 10. The family were given temporary leave to remain but were threatened with deportation when their visa ran out earlier this year. Gamu had however claimed in recent reports that the situation is in the process of being resolved.
Cherly has however become public enemy number one with many people accusing her of taking out her hate for ex-hubby on the black people. Someone wrote on twitter “even election in Zimbabwe are not as bad”.
